Bear caught on video nudging sleeping man's foot - CNN Video

A Massachusetts man was woken up by a bear nudging his foot after falling asleep in his backyard.

Tried to watch this with my kids. No one told me to skip the cheesy never ending opening scene. They refused to go any further. 😑 I skipped it then. I’ll skip this one too. Remake, remake, remake. Please STOP! bad casting Zack is too old to play a baby Just stop No thanks No one would ever be as great as the originals no one!

Hey cmon...please don’t remake. I’m sick of all these remakes. Write something original. Oh God help us C'mon, dude. Zac will play all three leads. Silly, pointless movie. Not even funny. Remake WHY? why not just show it again...he's not going to make it better So what. Who cares? Does this make it officially official that Hollywood is officially creatively bankrupt?

Another pointless remake from the studio that has made so many unnecessary remakes over recent years all inferior to the originals; this policy is similar to what Disney used to do 20+ years ago making straight to DVD sequels of animated classics I’ll be the baby Remaking it won't make it better. Which was already a remake...

Great news for us all id say 👏🏻👏🏼👏🏽👏🏿 New_GirlTV Already did it no need for a remake Not happy about this Can Steve Guttenberg still be in it? crypticcocktail this is gonna be a whole different movie! 'Best true crime book in years!' Another CLASSIC to be forever ruined! So sad! I like you Zac but dude no don't do it

Cant wait You can’t complain about a remake of a remake, can you? Yeah, that’s right. The TMAAB movie with Magnum PI in it was a remake. And, it was pure schmalz. But, hey! Maybe this version will be different? The negativity! Geez! We get it, you’re cooler than anyone who would be excited about this. 🥱

Why does Hollywood keep remaking good movies and turning them into bad movies? Uh aren't we missing two other men? I haven't been able to watch the remake of 'Overboard' A remake instead of Three Men and a Grandbaby? Can't they ever just give us what we want. Guttenburg, Damson, and Selleck are alive and well. Ughhh

So what. Who cares? Another remake?🤦‍♂️ boring... One of the dads will be gay, the 2nd one Black, the third one Asian. This is going to be a PC 💩 sandwich. Can the other two men be Shawn Mendes and Timothy Chamalet? Who are going to play the 3 men? This guy needs to sack his agent or remove himself from any kind of decision making regarding his career... Guy is a very underrated actor, should be lining up for Scorsese or Nolan films now.

Another remake? WHY?!!!!! Hope the use Steve Guttenberg...he doesn’t age. 🤍 u ZacEfron Can Hollywood not come up with anything original? How about the members of ZZ TOP instead. disneyplus thank you!!!! A reboot of a remake of french movie....this is exactly what we need. Cinema & TV are in the best hands possible.

I’m already falling asleep Hes the baby Please say he’s playing ALL THREE MEN!!!!! Why? This film doesn't need a remake. If they wanna do remakes they should do films that where good in there day but aren't popular 2day and try to make them great. This is a bad choice they should remake things like woman ib red or flight of the navigator imo.

& the reboot/remake complainers are going to start in 5...4...3...2...1 Finally some original content You used to walk into a room in Hollywood and they'd say, 'Hit me with something I haven't heard before'. Now it's, 'Who's run the ROI's on remaking the titles we have under existing license?' Disney+ original movies suck

Next they’ll remake Crocodile Dundee and Turner & Hooch No. Just no. NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Okay but three men and a little lady is so much better. Can they just remake the sequel Can they also get Tom Holland on board? Ben Shapiro stars as the baby Enough with the Epstein Island fantasy movies already.

Now they’re remaking crappy movies. You’d think with all the down time Hollywood could actually come up with some creative, original ideas. Guess not... .I thought there were talks about a third movie where the little girl grows up and gets married. I remember it was going to be called Three Men and the Bride. I rather have another sequel with the original cast than another remake.

I wonder if will Ghost boy appear in this movie? desireemilks I loved this movie as a kid I am so down for a remake! If they make the other 2 men black/Latino & Asian & touch on the different parenting styles within their cultures this film could be hilarious. I guess the whole ridiculous “dad bod” worked

This sounds dumb unless its hella gay. Can we just bring the cast back? Jeremiah 30:6 Ask and see: Can a man bear children? Then why do I see every strong man with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor, every face turned deathly pale? Kiss my ass! Is there no new ideas in Hollywood? He will star as the baby

So........ who are the three men going to be? Anyone has an original idea!? Aight. Let’s do 3 men and a baby, but this time WITHOUT Tom Selleck. THATS AN ORIGINAL IDEA. SUCCESS!!! Can they get the original baby, tho? So what. Who cares? Why hollywood why Fuck this I’m excited but what I really want is 3 Men and a Grandbaby with the original cast.

🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢 A remake of a remake. Only allowed if he rocks a MUSTACHE TheRealNimoy was the true heart of this movie! Without him why bother! TheRock cmon dude 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮 Just imagine if studios invested in original ideas Just no! The original is epic! Leave it alone!

Another steaming pile of Disney crap? Yes, please! GraceRandolph Leonard Nimoy directed the original Three Men and a Baby? 😮 They’re all gay this time right? I thought he was done with Hollywood...? Hollyweird is dead. Just like music is dead. Again ? Remake 2020 Because Hollyweird sucks and is not able to make a original movie they do shitty remakes and sequals with people who can't act or sing.

Is this a story about 3 men who are perfectly capable of taking care of a baby on their own, and if they happen to have a question - as all new parents do - they just google the answer? OMG I WAS CALLING IT! as one of the three men or the baby 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ Are there any writers left in Hollywood.,or do they just re hash this stuff?!!!

I'm not against this. Why would you bother Sort it out Hollywood Make it PC, Three Theys and a They Ew no. We decided years ago that it would be Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, and Chris Evans. 👍 Why? Has the entertainment industry never heard of a library? New and Old stories exist there. This tent pole bs needs to stop or better I’d even understand making new tent poles, then this continuation of something from the ’80s/90’s.

WHY Nope, not wasting time watching remakes. Original material only, please, disneyplus Seriously. Who. Need. This. ? Oh man!!! Now I have to sign up for disneyplus !!!! Is this just another baby daddy? Ugh, no thanks. I love the original. No need to remake it. 🙄 Another useless remake. Hollywood has 0 originality anymore.

Another re-make? Has Hollywood run out of original ideas Instead of remake, make it the 3rd movie in the franchise, bring back Selleck, Danson and Gutenberg, have them all cone to stay with Zac's character who is the now grown up Marys husband looking after their new baby on his own for a week as Mary goes to UK ZacEfron

Alright Love his new documentary on Netflix so ....yes to this, too. Love Disney Plus and he's cool enough to carry the reboot. DownToEarthWithZacEfron If he doesn’t grow a Tom Selleck mustache then we riot.
